The 2018 Steve Hirsch Gutter Bowl is just a few short weeks away, on April 10. 

Gutter Bowl is a favorite Arizona Law tradition, bringing together our alumni and friends for a night of bowling and pure fun. The event also helps us to honor alumnus Steve Hirsch ('80) and raises funds for the scholarship in his name.
Until the footnotes,


Join Us at the Steve Hirsch Gutter Bowl, April 10

It's that time of year again -- time for some lousy bowling and a great cause. The 2018 Steve Hirsch Gutter Bowl is upon us.

When: Tuesday, April 10, 2018, 6-9 p.m.
Where: Scottsdale Bowlmor, 7300 E. Thomas Rd, 
Scottsdale, AZ 85251
Now in its 11th year, the Gutter Bowl beckons your team to the Scottsdale Bowlmor, where we will take over the entire alley on Tuesday, April 10, to battle for the coveted trophy -- the lowest score of the night. Don't worry, there are awards for high achievers as well.
Last year we renamed this event in memory of our good friend and ardent Arizona Law alumnus, Steve Hirsch ('80). Steve was committed to alumni and friends coming together to have a good time and this was one of his favorite events of the year.
All proceeds from the Hirsch Bowl will go to the Steven A. Hirsch Scholarship Fund. We ask you to join us in supporting the fund by making a contribution to the fund, sponsoring the Gutter Bowl, and putting a team together to join in the festivities and to honor Steve.
If you or your firm is unable to attend the event, we ask that you give directly to the Steven A. Hirsch Scholarship Fund.
This year's co-chairs are Coree Neumeyer ('07) and Brad Vynalek ('99).
Sign up to bowl
Sign up as a team or come as an individual bowler and we will connect with you with a team.
Each team will get its own lane and Steve Hirsch Gutter Bowl t-shirts! All participants will enjoy complimentary shoe rental, appetizers, pizza, salad, soft drinks, and pitchers.
Want to enjoy the fun and honor Steve's legacy, but don't want to bowl? Sign up as an attendee. You will get the same food and fun without the low score.
As always, teams and bowlers compete for the highest team score, highest individual score, and the coveted Gutter Bowl award (lowest team score).
Individual bowler: $60
Team of six: $500
Attendee (not bowling): $30
If you have questions or need help signing up your team, contact Chris Gast, cgast@email.arizona.edu or 520-626-2400.
Your sponsorship will support an endowed scholarship in Steve's name to ensure that his legacy lives forever at the College of Law. We have several Gutter Bowl sponsorship levels and benefits available (PDF).

Tribal Justice Clinic Students Promoting Justice in Indian Country
On Oct. 30, 2017, third-year JD student Pete Sabori (Gila River/Hopi) became the first University of Arizona Law student to appear as a student practitioner in tribal court representing a tribe. 

As a participant in Arizona Law's Tribal Justice Clinic, Pete represented the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, acting as a prosecuting attorney in a juvenile criminal ca

The students joined Professor Diamond in several court appearances, prepared pleadings and motions, and negotiated and conducted a case adjudication.

Arizona Law in the News


We pursue justice in its many forms -- and that pursuit is evident in our major lectures (thank you Peter Neumann and Susan Saladoff!) our research and scholarship (congrats, Alex!), our celebration of great alums and support for students (the Steve Hirsch Gutter Bowl), and our clinics (well done Pete, Alexis, Derek, and Jim!).
I can't wait to see many of you on the lanes on April 10 -- for a great time and a great cause.
